This is what fairy tales should be. Terrifying.
Read this a few years ago, and it stayed etched in my memory. I had to make the book mine, and read it again.
And again and again.

(Thanks Amazon for getting it to me so quickly!)

Its an amazing book full of adventure. It can be scary and horrific at times but you will never get bored. You will need to know what happens next and you won't be able to stop reading it! I am an 19 year old who loved every second of it. Its a book for all ages but not for a child.

Format: Hardcover
From reading this book, The Book of Lost Things, by John Connolly, one is able to reflect their past experience to events that occurred within the book. John Connolly displays a boy's life and transition from childhood to manhood. Events within the book reveal many lessons to be learned in life. I enjoyed the concept of a boy's journey to realize what he really lost and found from the tragic lost of his mother. The key moral to be obtained from the book is that with every action taken, there is a sacrifice to be compensated. The main character, David, discovered this when he encountered the ghost of a little girl who had gone through a devastating death.

One of my most favourite characters within the book was Roland. Roland was a knight who was in search for a dark tower. As you read the book, you will recognize many tales within it and one of the tales was about a knight who was in search of a tower to rescue a princess that was trapped within it. This short story was a bit altered in the book; it was a combination of Rapunzel and Sleeping Beauty. The reason why I favour this character is because of his life story. He was in love with another knight and was in search for that knight, who had gone on the quest in search for the dark tower. Roland met his end in the tower but was still able to find his lost love. Though it was a tragedy, it ended in a happy ending for Roland.
